Would you still make a film knowing you have no audience to watch It?

An OFC reader recently emailed me with a very strange question. Which I had never thought of. He asked, Suppose you wake up one day and find oneself that you are the only human alive completely, utterly alone marooned in a modern world in which everyone else has disappeared or been killed by some mysterious virus, is both the stuff of nightmares and of fantasy. Would you still like to make a Film Knowing Nobody Would See It?
There could be easier-said-than-done YES/NO type answers but I liked the creative thought of the reader and decided to write an article and share my thoughts. When I read this question, the first scene came up in mind was from the Will smith’s movie I’m Legend. In which he is lying on the road with his dog.

IamLegend

And my answer would be definitely YES! Film making is my passion and I won’t stop even if there would be no audience to see my film. As the internet is expanding Independent filmmakers like us have an ever-growing presence on social media sites such as twitter, facebook, youtube, and various blogs to build their audience, but that won’t also help YouTube counter will sit at zero, and nobody will be there to appreciate or criticize your work . But to whom does it matter?
Vincent Van Gogh, “an artist who in the ninth year of his career had yet to sell a single painting.” Van Gogh spent nearly a decade working in poverty and obscurity without an audience. He produced almost one thousand oil paintings in his short lifetime.
In the face of such adversity, why did he press on? What motivated him? The activity is done for its own sake; not in expectation of some future consequence.
Think broadly, – when you work with limitations instead of against them, they turn from enemy to friend.

There’s a lot more at play — and at stake — than money and the audience.

Google’s Top 10 Trending Movies of 2015

google

I love writing my end-of-year column because it gave a real shock of the year. I am a die hard fan of Star War movies and really excited about it,I thought it would definitely gonna rank in top 3 trending movies but according to Google, that was not the top trending movie of 2015. Somehow, “The Force Awakens” didn’t even make the top 10.

Google just dumped a ton of data to cap off 2015 (even though it’s not over yet) and tell us what we did with our computer time.

 

Here are this year’s top trending movies by google :

 

There you have it. Dinos killed it. Congratulation, “Jurassic World.” On the other hand, “Star Wars” got its own different segment, with its own rundowns, and the note that the first official “Force Awakens” trailer, uncovered in October, is one of the most-viewed movie trailers of all time.

 

Here are some other 2015 Google trends that may surprise you:

 

 

Pornhub First Adult Film Shot In Space

There’s been lots of buzz about space travel in the news lately. While some were busy over the argue that adult film will go underground if condoms become mandatory. The multi-million dollar adult industry Pornhub, had announced it want to shoot the first ever intergalactic sex tape in space. Pornhub had team up with top ranking adult studio Digital Playground to create history and pushing the boundaries away.

Eva Lovia and Johnny Sins are the stars enlisted into history with a six-person film crew.They were chosen because they are “professional” and “fun to work with,” Pornhub said. Lovia said the film would allow her to work two dream jobs: porn star and astronaut.

Sextronauts Porn stars Eva Lovia and Johnny Sins are signed up for the sex space mission.

Exploration was the key theme of their Indiegogo page, as they refer to the project as the “Pornhub Space Program” .It was announced as the very first porno set in space, which was going to be called as “Sexplorations.”

The pioneers at Pornhub are counting on both social media and good old-fashioned word of mouth to help spread the word about their space program. In a meeting at Los Angeles County (largest center for adult film production worldwide). The leading mobile porn tube sites and competitor of Pornhub extremetube.mobi Mobile Porn Tube and pussysex.mobi Adult Sex Videos have also announced they will also support their sexploartion campaign and donate to raise the funds for this unique adult film shot in space.

They had a total goal $3,400,000 USD goal Out of which they could only raised $236,086 USD by 1,388 people in 2 months ( almost around 7% ). This CAMPAIGN have been CLOSED now ended on August 9, 2015.

Although this was a huge sum, but they were fairly confident that the film will be made but unfortunately they couldn’t reach their goal it was also announced If the $3.4 million fundraising goal would met within 60 days, the film will be expected to launch late in 2016.

There is no news or update now since the CAMPAIGN is closed but we hope soon there will be some official announcement by them soon.

It was really a One of a kind and very unique idea to defy gravity and taking adult film industry into next level. But as per my personal opinion, this was the stupidest idea I have ever heard or at least in the Top 5 stupidest idea of 2015.

I don’t understand why Pornhub doing this? “For the love of science and sex,” they said but as far as we know, no astronauts have ever had sex in space, and it is thought to be extremely difficult to have sex in zero gravity, although clearly not impossible.
